is TSJ worth $60 per year? nice articles and good photography, as you would expect. tries a little too hard to be artsy...spends a lot of time waxing over days gone by and people who were not that interesting, imo.
that being said, i cancelled my subscriptions to Surfer and/or Surfing years ago when it became clear that i was not their target demographic. the ads were so hip and so core that i often couldn't figure out what they were selling (and there were sooooo many pages of ads). so TSJ is prolly more my speed anyway...but it ain't cheap.
